just a thought...usefulness of CGT spoiler

A lot of the newer SUVs and minivans will have a small spoiler above the
rear glass, most of the time it actually pulls some of the air moving
over the top of the vehicle and directs it downward over the rear glass.
This helps prevent some of the "misting/dirt/snow" accumulation that
otherwise is VERY annoying. Of course, it also helps to have a
wiper/washer back there. 

If I had any of the new Avants, I would make sure to have one of those
spoiler/deflectors mounted.

Life's a beach. Dig your toes into the sand and enjoy.
